My Story

Hard to know where to begin.
How do you sum up 92 years in a few minutes? All that he saw and did during his lifetime. I’ll share my experience having him as my Dad.
I only learned to fully appreciate him later on – when I matured and had some life experience.
As a kid, I may have thought he should be like the fathers on 60s TV shows, or at least leap tall buildings in a single bound. But I quickly learned that those were not real and that he was far more real than most people could possibly be. In his own way, he was a genuine super hero. He was the best family man a person could be. He gave unconditional love to his 2 children. He helped take care of us and created a solid household for myself, my sister and my mom. He gave me great inspiration as a child. He taught me how to work out. When I was 8 years old he taught me to row a boat which lead to a lifelong love of person-powered boating.
Now, when I lead flotillas of rafts down the rapids, I think of how Dad was the one who got it all started.

So many times now, I look at a situation and realize that in some ways it’s a tribute to my Dad. He got my intellectual wheels turning as well. I never learned in school any math that was more useful than what he’d taught me by the age of 8. He was hard-working and a good provider. Electrician for 42 years. Only recently could I say I’ve drawn breath that long. As a little boy, he sold Hershey bars to help support his family during the depression. He inspired me to work hard and be entrepreneurial as well.

He was a good dad all the way to the end. I moved recently. As we were preparing to move, he told Janet that he would pay for movers no matter what the cost, because he didn’t want me to do any heavy lifting. Even though our roles reversed many years ago and it was my turn to take care of him, he still wanted to take care of me. That’s the kind of person he was. Caring and selfless all of his life.

He was loved by many and he was liked by all who knew him. Whenever someone would meet him they would always take a moment to tell me what a nice guy my dad was. The next world is lucky to receive Al Baron. And this world is surely a poorer place for his having left it. There’s no good time to lose a loved one. I was bemoaning that the timing of dad’s passing was particularly bad. We were in the midst of moving. Passover made it uncertain as to when services could be held.
Janet said to me, “It’s Daddy’s way of saying ‘hey don’t forget about me’.” She said “you know what a character he is”. Certainly that is part of how he should be remembered. A kind, gentle and loving man with a quirky sense of humor. That was my Dad.
